This Week at ADB, Inc., 8-14 April 2012

Steve Cole reports:

This week started to get intense as parts of Marines went to press and more parts were prepped and ready. The weather this week was mild. The spam storm mostly remained at something over 200 per day. Stephen and Leanna Cole continued to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their 31-day courtship, including their first kiss on 12 April 1977.

Nothing new went on e23 this week but Captain's Log #22 was prepared and sent and should appear next week.

Steve Cole worked on his list of 22 goals, completing 20 of them (Communique #76, an hour of work on Project E, a reserve blog for Jean's file, reviewed Petrick's Call Out Notes for Captain's Log #45, did 14 pages of the Federation Commander reference scenario book, finished the Captain's Log #44 FLAP list, updated the text catalog again, sent the last Reinforcements Attack cards to the staff, updated the Klingon SIT, revised the Marine gunboat rules, did reports on generic Starline 2500 ships for Mongoose, got the Marines cover ready for press, got the blood tests for his physical, ordered stickers for Starmada covers, did several pages of Federation Admiral, sent the Marines map to press, requested quotes for Nova and Marine covers, and did an F&E Q&A page for Captain's Log #45) and several other things besides (graphics for T2012, reports on FC, the Captain's Log #22 description for e23, a nice chat with the Historical Miniatures Gamers Society, worked on the ACTASF scout rules, worked on customer request items, reviewed T2012, approved nine new Starline 2500 ships for production, discussed new Klingons with Mongoose, and set up Petrick's scenario workshop).

Steven Petrick worked mostly on T2012, fighting the formatting demons, inserting tournament information for non-SFB games, and integrating Squadron Major into the entire concept.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, and managed customer service.

Joel did website updates, chased pirates, and helped Mike.

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1165 friends), proofread things, wrote an article for T2012, and did some marketing.
